STRONG buried in Tirau, Waikato

Journal by ngairedith

TIRAU is a small town in the Waikato region of the North Island of New Zealand, 50km southeast of Hamilton
In the 19th century, Tirau, then Oxford, was originally planned as a large-scale city for the Waikato, however plans were changed after the entrepreneurial Rose family bought up large volumes of land in the region, with the intention of making large returns when it came of high demand. Oxford later became a rural service town, and changed its name to Tirau in 1896. By the late 1980s Tirau was fast becoming a ghost town.

TIRAU is now a well known tourist stop-off and is characterised by many local art works in the town forged out of discarded corrugated iron.

In 2000 The Castle opened in Tirau, a large toy museum on the towns southern limits, which is in clear view when heading through the township from Rotorua or Taupo. Among its other well known sights are the information centre shaped like a giant dog and 'the big sheep', a large wool outlet, both made out of corrugated iron. Many of the shops in the town also possess large corrugated iron sculptures and the church has a giant shepherd also made out of corrugated iron.
